Marketing and print group expands with embroidery workshop

The Mina Group has brought its embroidery service in house, expanding into new premises and creating jobs.

Blackpool based entrepreneur Jake Adams, 21, launched Community Printing at 14. His group now offers marketing, communications and print procurement services, working with organisations including Homestart Blackpool, Fylde & Wyre, Healthwatch Blackpool and charity Streetlife and its recent Big Sleepout campaign.

The new premises, a formerly derelict property on Lytham Road, will offer embroidery and digital print services. The move is part of an expansion which sees Mina Group's headcount increase from three to seven, with the appointment of a new business development manager, graphic designer and production manager for the workshop. The business also plans to employ an apprentice.

Jake said: “We were always planning to open a second premises so we’ve used this opportunity to bring our uniform embroidery offer in-house. We were already proud to provide garments for colleges, uniform groups like the Scouts and the farming and agricultural sector so I’m glad we’ve been able to create new jobs and bring a property back into use through this venture as we’ve taken on more and more work.”

The investment follows The Mina Group becoming a Northern Powerhouse Partner.
